Rosenstein Contradicts Trump On Comey Memo Timeline


In this case, Rosenstein likely appointed a special counsel because the investigation into Russia's alleged involvement in the 2016 presidential election could also probe Trump's affairs.

A day after appointing former FBI Director Robert Mueller as special counsel in the investigation into possible collusion between Russian Federation and Donald Trump's presidential campaign, Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein travelled to Capitol Hill to brief the entire Senate on the status of the investigation and what comes next.

But Mr Trump said the issue was dividing an already polarised nation. Trump wrote, misspelling the word counsel as he referred to former President Barack Obama and former presidential candidate Hillary Clinton.

Before the press conference on Thursday, Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein told senators that he knew Comey was going to be fired even before he wrote a memo that provided a basis for Comey's dismissal. But Mr Trump's claim ignored impeachment efforts and blistering verbal attacks on previous presidents and other political leaders.

Zabaleta arrived at City from Espanyol in August 2008, a day before the Abu Dhabi takeover transformed the fortunes of the club. It will also be Pablo Zabaleta's last game at the Etihad after the club announced he is joining West Ham.

An anonymous source told the Post that Rosenstein was upset at the White House for initially saying his memo was the reason Comey was sacked, and threatened to resign if that narrative was not changed.

Jones agreed with Banks's take on the investigation into Russian meddling in the USA election and possible ties to the Trump administration. A selloff in US stocks looked set to extend into its second day on Thursday.

Mueller's appointment was not expected to affect the FBI or congressional investigations.

In former FBI Director Robert Mueller, the DOJ appears to have chosen for special Russian Federation counsel a respected figure of integrity, possessed of impeccable credentials, who inspires confidence this investigation will be conducted in thorough, professional and impartial fashion. But at the same time, White House officials have been discussing bringing in additional legal counsel to deal with the growing probe, according to the New York Times.

Temer denies the claim and insists he won't resign, but his allies and adversaries are already considering a future without him. Mr Neves is being investigated in several corruption cases related to the "Car Wash" probe into kickbacks to politicians.

"We don't want to do anything to get in the way, but it seems to me with all of the various oversight investigations occurring [.] that that is a trainwreck waiting to happen", he said. And I think it's a very, very negative thing. Another Republican congressman, Carlos Curbelo, said if any wrongdoing was uncovered, "Those people should be held accountable".

He reiterated his earlier comments that the investigation is a "witch hunt". "I am on a fact-finding mission", he said on CNN. "This won't be a witch hunt", he said on CNN.

"On May 8, I learned that President Trump meant to remove Director Comey and sought my advice and input".

"It's clear he just wanted to defer to Mueller on everything tough", said one Democratic lawmaker inside the room, who added that Rosenstein didn't address most questions and described his demeanor as "frustratingly cautious".
